Financial Aid Resources
The National Student Loan Data System is the Department of Education’s central database for student aid. It receives data from schools, agencies that guaranty loans, the Direct Loan program, the Pell Grant program, and other programs. The NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of federal student aid loans and Pell grants that are tracked through their entire cycle, from aid approval through closure. Students can retrieve their loan information through the NSLDS Student Access site.
